Over the course of the last couple of months we have been in search of an Overwatch Roster based in the Middle East to represent the Valour eSports brand and colours along side our Championship winning Call of Duty team. However, with eSports only picking up at the end of 2016 in the region and Overwatch becoming a growing eSport we could no longer wait for a roster to form.
At the start of February 2017, we made the decision to build an Overwatch Roster from the ground up with the help of more experienced members in the Overwatch community. This roster has been in the works since the start of our decision.
Today, we announce the confirmed roster for Valour eSports Overwatch:
Bard, Captain of the newly named Valour eSports Overwatch comments on joining Valour eSports:
“With our region not seeming to have too much competition, I was really interested in joining a leading organization to help better my teammates, our region and myself as a player. Valour, already having a head start with a leading CoD team, seemed to have all the right resources and infrastructure to create a successful Overwatch team, and that's why I'm so excited to get to work with them. With Insane Game knowledge from Matic to crazy Mechanics from Nario, I think our roster is pretty stacked and ready to make a name for ourselves.”
Jason, Founder and Co-CEO, comments on the acquisition of the roster:
“I’m extremely excited that Valour eSports is moving into PC eSports, especially going in with a roster as strong as ours. Myself and Ben(Co-CEO), have been looking to move into Overwatch for a few months. It took a lot of time to get the players together and believe that we have got a successful team who will only get better as they play more. I look forward to seeing them at their LAN debut under the Valour banner on the 10th.”
The team will debut under the Blue and White banner of Valour eSports on March 10th at the ASUS Middle East LAN. They will also be competing in the PLG Nationals starting later this month.
